The VT was called “the savior of the branch lines”.
The PIKO models of the railcar and the control car embody, like their DB models, clear, functionally reliable and low-maintenance designs.
The railcar model is driven by a miniature motor, which is equipped with two comparatively large, precisely dimensioned flywheels for the benefit of flawless running properties. The drive acts on both axes.
Since the railcars and control cars can be coupled to one another via a conductive close coupling kinematics, two additional (and thus four) axles can be used for safe power consumption when using a control car.
The railcar has a PluX16 digital interface according to NEM 658 standards.
The lighting functions of both vehicles can be switched separately. Despite the structural equipment of the motor and control car, a clear view through the passenger compartments is possible. The railcar can also be used as a prototype for transporting individual freight cars.
An axle without traction tires, to be exchanged for the axle with traction tires of the VT, is included.
